Hillary Emails Deemed Too Sensitive To Release

Things just keep getting worse and worse for Hillary

(Fox News) The intelligence community has deemed some of Hillary Clinton’s emails “too damaging” to national security to release under any circumstances, according to a U.S. government official close to the ongoing review. A second source, who was not authorized to speak on the record, backed up the finding.

The determination was first reported by Fox News, hours before the State Department formally announced Friday that seven email chains, found in 22 documents, will be withheld “in full” because they, in fact, contain “Top Secret” information.

The State Department, when first contacted by Fox News about withholding such emails Friday morning, did not dispute the reporting – but did not comment in detail. After a version of this report was first published, the Obama administration confirmed to the Associated Press that the seven email chains would be withheld. The department has since confirmed those details publicly.

The decision to withhold the documents in full, and not provide even a partial release with redactions, further undercuts claims by the State Department and the Clinton campaign that none of the intelligence in the emails was classified when it hit Clinton’s personal server.

Fortunately, we have uber-leftist Vox attempting to cloud the issue by wondering if the emails were classified after they appeared on the server, but, alas, for Clinton supporters and liberals in general, the chance of this occurring is extraordinarily low. Information that is so classified as to make the State Dept refuse to release any part of them, after consultation with the intelligence community was surely classified to begin with. And, really, regardless of classification to start with, using an insecure home-brew server was fool-hardy, not too mention against government regulations to start with. Mrs. Clinton would surely have known, and been constantly reminded, that using this server would open government communications to outside hackers. She would surely have known that communications for her job, the State Dept one, not the raising money for the Clinton Foundation one, would have constantly included sensitive information.

Let’s not forget, she would have known this from her time as First Lady, and when she was in the US Senate, where she would have signed security agreements and documents about how to handle even secure and privileged communications and documents, and those agreements never end. She surely signed them at the State Dept. She cannot claim innocence, and, what’s the old saying, ignorance of the law is no excuse?

If Hillary was so clueless as to think she could do US government business, including emailing sensitive and secret information all the way up to the highest classification, then she’s too foolish and reckless to be President.

    Well, so you’d think, but at least some fault has to devolve on the people who sent classified or sensitive e-mails to the e-mail address [email protected]. If you are sending email to any .com email address, you have to know that it isn’t a State Department email address.

    The untold part of the story is that someone, somewhere, in the security apparatus had to have warned Mrs Clinton, the State Department, the CIA, the White House, a whole bunch of different governmental bodies which deal with national security and diplomatic concerns, that this was very surely not a standard email address, and raised questions about its security, and had such concerns squashed!

    Not even the most loyally partisan Democrat could think that, following such warnings, Mrs Clinton shouldn’t have switched over to a state.gov email address, if using the private server was just some sort of slip-up. That she insisted on not doing so means that she had to have had a reason for such, and the only reason that makes any sense is that she wanted to shield her communications from government records laws.

    Hillary Clinton is a fundamentally dishonest person.
